  • If you are going to the museum Marmottan-Monet on the subway, you will probably go to the nearest stations to the museum (La Muet or Ranelag). During a walking tour in Ranelag Park you will see a sculptural group. We recommend to stay for 5-7 minutes. This is a monument to the wonderful Lafontenu (Jean de La Fontaine). The Figure of the writer bent over the characters of Fables: Crows and Foxes. Since childhood We know this fable in the transfer of I. A. Krylov about a cunning fox and a crow, which has missed the cheese. The Modern monument was erected in 1983 on the preserved pedestal of the year 1891. Unfortunately the monument To Lafontenu of the 19th century was not preserved and how beautifully looked then can be seen in the articles of the Internet.

  • This monumental sculpture of John of the fountain observing high, with a touch of irony, the characters of one of his most famous fables, was designed by the Portuguese sculptor Correia in the 1980s and opened in 1984, in this garden of Ranelagh. The choice of this fable is perhaps not trivial, in this neighborhood, where vanity (and cunning) reign as Louis XIV! This set is the mute, not far from the Marmottan Museum. We deplore that the Fox's tail is cut off.
